In the era of wireless networking system, Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is widely in acceptance. MANET consists of the mobile nodes that are free to move in and out in the network. In a MANET, nodes are the system or devices i.e. Mobile phones, laptops, PDAs, MP3 player and a personal computer that is participating in the network and are mobile. They can form arbitrary topologies depending upon their connectivity with each other in the network. The nodes have the ability of self-configuring themselves on the basis of the demand, due to which they can be deployed urgently without the need of any infrastructure.
